Divisionals

Divisional age groups are played for points and Championships, Promotion and Relegation in the U13 to U16 age groups.

 

The Club will run trials for its top competition squads in the Mixed competition age groups (and if player numbers exceed 16 in the Female competitions). These trials occur in late October through to early December, with successful players provided with a Letter of Offer, and unsuccessful players able to register in our other squads when the online registration system becomes available for the new Season. 

Football Queensland accommodates divisional football for ages U12-U16 with divisions ranging from division 9 up to division 1 and then the Football Queensland Premier League (FQPL).

 

Football Queensland has Competitions that can accommodate mixed gender teams, or female only leagues. ​Teams can move between Divisions at the end of each year by either being promoted or relegated. Teams also compete in Finals football if they finish in the top four positions in their league.

U13 - U16 play home and away matches and game times are dependant on the competition the team is placed into and their age group. They could play on Friday nights, Saturday or Sunday. 

Training for these age groups (except for the FQPL and Division 1 squads) is once per week and it is scheduled in a 1.25 hour time slot between Monday to Thursday either 4.30pm to 5.45pm or 6.00pm to 7.15pm or Friday 4.30pm to 5.45pm.
